Quote from: bill t. on April 24, 2013, 04:56:21 pmI first heard that from a professional photographer in the late 50's. He was a well known news photographer, grousing to my class of 15 year old wannabees as he demonstrated his 4x5 Speed Graphic kit. You know, enormous silvery reflector with immense flash bulbs. And bellows, and sheet film holders. Goddam kids with those Nikons were degrading the profession. My first inkling that obsolescence is usually a choice, not a requirement.
